Things to look for when buying CBD
Before you buy CBD oil online, be sure to keep an eye out for these five factors:
1. “Free trial bottle – just pay shipping”
One of the most prevalent scams involving CBD oil is those offering “free trial bottles.” When they use a credit card, it will either be charged multiple times for the shipping fee or charged monthly for a “club” that you probably didn’t realize you were joining.
2. Selling only on social media
Be wary when buying solely from social media CBD suppliers. In addition to violating the terms of service for most social media sites, sellers often can’t provide lab results about their CBD oil.
3. No third-party lab results
Much like social media advertising, anyone can claim to sell CBD oil. Before buying CBD oil online, review their independent third-party lab results publicly posted online. If there are no third-party lab results available, request them before purchase. If they can’t provide them, avoid making a purchase.
4. A limited number of reviews
Before buying CBD oil online, be sure to read all the reviews – both good and bad – on the company website, at independent news websites, and through social media. If there are no reviews or very few reviews, be wary of falsely advertised quality CBD oil.
5. “Miracle drug” claims
If a CBD oil company makes outlandish claims about their product’s potential, be aware. Only buy CBD oil from companies that can provide the science behind their products.
